About Mim Miller
We were high school sweethearts and married soon after graduation. The rental suite was actually our first apartment. We have enjoyed living on the farm ever since and it was a great place to raise our 3 children, all of whom are now married. The farm's lineage has been traced to a deed signed in 1750 and we're passionate about the family farm as an integral part of the fabric of our nation. We really see ourselves as stewards. We have such a connection to the farmland, and that in turn translates into a God connection. We value where the land came from. There's no more being created, and we value it as a treasure. We have a responsibility to it. As a family-owned and operated business, the Miller Homestead, up until 2012, was a dairy farm. We continue to raise heifers for a neighbor and grow corn, hay, soybeans and barley. We enjoy traveling and often stay in vacation rentals in out of the way places. Many times through the years we have hosted out of town relatives and friends in our home and love to share in their lives. When the apartment was vacated, we decided it was the right time in our lives to make it available to travelers. The Miller Homestead is located within easy highway access to Lancaster, York, Harrisburg or Philadelphia, providing many options for day trips. Children can enjoy playing in a large yard or watching the farmer at work. The owner is a Licensed Massage Therapist for those seeking the benefits of a therapeutic massage. Please contact owner prior to arriving to check availability.

Clean little place.
My wife, I had stayed for the weekend for our anniversary. Clair, Miriam have a very nice place that is well kept, cared for, very quiet, very clean, neat.
The location was perfect!
We were in Elizabethtown for a wedding and the location was great. The place was perfect as well!
Wonderful property and stay
My family had a wonderful stay at this property! The home was well appointed, clean, and comfortable. My toddler loved seeing the cows. We'd happily return!
Perfect Weekend Getaway
We booked a weekend away for our son's 3rd birthday, and even though it was a different season than we'd expected due to the surprise March snowstorm, we had a wonderful time. The guest house itself was perfect for our family of four (we also have a 10 month old), and our birthday boy was always excited to head back to "his farm" after our visits to the Strasburg Railroad and the Turkey Hill Experience. We went for a walk on the trail around the farm and both boys were beyond thrilled to discover the cows and goats. I'd love to go back to enjoy a warmer season, but we truly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
The apartment and surrounding property was clean and very well maintained.
Clair and Mim were warm and welcoming. The apartment was cozy and we liked looking at the family history photos. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Miller Homestead.
Clean, beautiful! Near Hershey and Lancaster! Perfect for couple or couple and 2 children!!! We would love to go back!!!
